California Dental Board questioned after patient death

Team 10 investigated the California Dental Board and found that the board does not disclose important information to patients.

One California dentist had a patient die, but more than a month later, no information about the incident was provided by the board.

According to medical reports, the patient was in cardiac arrest when the paramedics arrived. They apparently found two pieces of surgical gauze in his airway and up to six different sedatives in his system. They took all measures possible to save his life, but were unable.

The dentist removed someone’s wisdom teeth the next day.
